Some thoughts:

Sundays thoughts was to spend the night in Jackson. Thought it would be fun to check out the town. Was going to spend some time looking at hotel rooms etc if this s something wed want to do. Or we can bag the idea all together and camp somewhere else. Totally game.

We will be spending a good amount of time in Bear country. Might be good to spend some more time on this subject during preparation. Who has bear spray/weaponry etc. I'm sure D. Linn and Stan can add some good tips for camping in bear country.

Theres a few other things but cant think of them right now....

Ready for the run!!!
